So i have been bleeding after 7 weeks of waiting after diagnoses of my blighted ovum. I have been bleeding for well over a week and on saturday night after a 14 hour shift at work it was dripping out of me. I got through 14 pads and two pairs of pants in one hour, before i passed two large clots larger than a plum! I assumed it was the sac.
But the scan yesterday showed it was fully intact still. What the hell! Surely i am anaemic by now! The consultant said it was normal but as i was "14 weeks" now i have to have a D and C this friday which i have been trying to avoid.
It was awful. I started my new job last weekend and i had to go work the next day on sunday after bleeding out what looked like half a pint in one hour.
I am working weekends only so will be there again this weekend after my d and c on friday. was anyone okay the next day?
It's my fault as i should have had the d and c 7 weeks ago but i am fed up with errors being made at my local hopsital and frankly do not trust them much!
oh u poor girl, i waited 8weeks b4 i had the d&c too but didnt bleed that bad b4 hand. u wont be able 4work after the op hunnie, i taut i was fine too for about two days after but ended up bak in hospital, i bled so heavily and the pain was unbareable for about two week after the op. i cudnt go to work i was too bad, it will be 3weeks since the op on thur and i am still not right, iv been bak the hospital so many times. if u dont take it easy it will take much longer for u to recover. u hav really been tru allot, i hope u will be ok x x
Oh sweetie. I had a similar thing although I started to bleed within days of diagnosis. I passed clots and piles of blood but sac was still fully intact and I had to go for a D+C. The pain was horrendous when passing a clot before the D+C - I had to squat and strain/push them out. The D+C itself was painless and over quickly.
I will warn you I still bled heavily and passed large clots the day after the D+C though.
You won't be fit to work the next day - you'll be weak and drained and emotionally upset too once it's all over
Hope you are okay (as much as you can be) - chin up!!
